JOHANNESBURG - The Public Protector has exonerated former Social Development Minister, Bathabile Dlamini from lying to Parliament.

Busisiwe Mkhwebane, who released several reports on Wednesday, says there was no evidence to substantiate allegations that Dlamini lied about her department's capacity to take over payment of pensions.

"We discovered that allegations that the minister (Dlamini) deliberately mislead the national assembly could not be substantiated."

The DA's Bridget Masango had accused Dlamini of lying about her department's capacity to take over payment of pensions.
